  1. Treeview in Connections

    Has there been any discussion on bringing back the treeview for the explorer pane? I've tried to get used to the new navigation, but the amount of clicking it takes now to drill down find sites is frustrating at best. Even as an option would be great.

  2. Provide a way for end user to trigger the copy of a template Site Collection

    i want to create a self-service for the users to create new sitecollections.

    Sharepoint sites should be created automatically by cloning a “default site” from within sharegate.

    Is it possible to trigger this from a sharepoint list (e.g. with a workflow on a new created item in the list) , where people create a new item with the name of the new sitecollection

    and then Sharegate is creating a new sitecollection by cloning our “default sitecollection” ?

  5. Add a SharePoint Online example using an email address in the connection screen

    "other user" let's you use any type of format you want (straight username, domain/user, e-mail address, etc.) but only the domain/user format is displayed and it can be confusing to users.

  7. Add the ability to Bulk Edit Documents/List Items directly in the Explorer

    The Bulk Edit option is only available on the List or Library level. You can't directly hit Bulk Edit on an Item, a Document, a Folder or a Document Set. I'd like to be able to do this directly from the Explorer

  9. Log all user actions in Sharegate

    When performing actions, successful or not, some organizations might need some logging of all the user actions done in the UI, like what options they used and what actions they performed. This can be a requirement in example, to be BIR compliant (a Dutch standard, based on ISO/IEC 27002).

  12. Modify column names

    Matthew is looking for a way to modify the name of a column during his migration process or maybe as part of an Explorer feature.

  15. Option to Toggle On/Off the "Show in the Quick Launch" During Migration

    would be nice to set the "show in quick launch" to no prior to migration/copy for the list/library settings. Maybe i missed that, but its a nice thing as many do not want the lists as part of the tree in the destination. This is especially true for sites that are old and being moved to a new version of SP, the UI can be manimpulated manually after but it saves end users experieincing new items in the tree they were not expecting.

    Thanks

  17. Change the "Add to existing group" under "Add permissions" to only show groups with custom permission on the target

    The "Add to existing group" option when you add permission will always show all the available groups in the Site Collection. If you have multiple subsites, each with their custom groups, it's very difficult to filter out the right groups.

    Instead, Sharegate should only show groups with custom permission on the selected target. It would be much easier to filter when you have massive environments.

  18. Remove permissions ->Remove All permissions should remove users from groups with permissions as well

    Users would expect removing all permissions for a user to remove that user from any permission group. At this point, to completely remove a user from a site, you have to run remove permissions->Remove from Existing Groups, and then run this another time, but this time "Remove All Permissions". It seems the latter should also take care of removing the user from groups. At least it's what a user would expect.

  19. List Definition Report

    I would love to see ShareGate have a report that specializes in printing a nice List Definition report that details each column by order, field type, choice values, etc. This report would be more comprehensive than can be produced by the Column report available now.

  20. Fully Display URLs in the Explorer

    I am using Sharegate 8.1.0. Many of the site collections I manage have long urls, and I cannot see the entire url in the Explorer view, making it difficult to quickly choose the right site collection when I need to deal with a singe site collection. Is it possible to make the column that shows the site url user-configurable to be wider when needed?
